Summary

In the winter of 1996, on the orders of the British government, the SAS stole the contents of a safe belonging to the Provisional IRA.

Rick Fuller headed that team. Days later Fuller's wife was brutally murdered. Convinced he was betrayed from within, Fuller begins a relentless search for her murderers.

Ten years on, Fuller is a Manchester gangland enforcer, a lone and bitter figure. On a job in Amsterdam, doors open to the past, but can Fuller finally take his revenge on the men who betrayed him?

An initial slow burn...

...which I found difficult to get into however, once I focussed on the story properly, I really enjoyed this fast paced story - and didn’t want to switch it off. I liked the way the characters developed through their own lenses, their relationships and principles. Interesting splattering if general knowledge and a satisfactory conclusion.

Disappointing story poorly told

I didn’t get on with this book and gave up on it. The story didn’t grip me and seem overblown and I found the narrator tried to hard in getting the words over. Overall a pity but there you go perhaps it’s just me as others seemed to like it.

Will certainly buy the next book in the series

Unusual way of writing from the aspect of three different characters but this was good. When the story first started, I wondered whether it would be my kind of thing but it just got better and better. Yes certainly a good buy

Outstanding narration but poor audible quality

This is an excellent story and the series promises to be good.

Unfortunately, the audible quality was not as good as it should have been. As each character spoke their story the volume decreased.

However, the narrator was outstanding.

Don't let the lowering of volume put you off choosing this book.

I gave up

Im sure the story is ok, but I gave up. I listen to books while driving, the Narration is ok gruff voice but he mumbles and talks quietly a lot, so in the Car I cant hear him... turn it up... talks loudly....turn it down... mumbles! I give up!!

Great story

It took me a few chapters to get used to the "Ray Winston-esque" narration, but once the story got going I was totally hooked.

This book is ok

Not brilliant but not awful, a tad mediocre. Beginning is slow and dull and seems a bit pointless and the narrator although good, has a rather depressing northern tone. I almost sent it back. However, it picks up pace and I got into it. It is all a bit strange though, most of the way through I thought “why?”. Why does a nurse join up with two rogue ex military guys and then after 3 months training become pretty much an assassin. All just seems too unlikely. I much prefer the John Milton books, I wouldn’t bother downloading another in this series.

Volume levels need adjusting

The volume range is such either I could not hear the soft words or alternating loud ones hurt my eardrums.
